Whites are back in action on Saturday as they travel to fellow National League strugglers Yeovil Town.
Andy Hessenthaler’s men will look to continue on from their 3-1 victory against Barnet on Tuesday night. Will De Havilland scored twice in three minutes to put Dover 2-0 up inside 20 minutes, before a brilliant volley from Ahkeem Rose put Whites three up at the break.
Barnet did get one back midway through the second half, however Whites kept the visitors at bay in wet and muddy conditions as they picked up only their third win of the season to move off the bottom of the National League.
With that win, Whites now sit 22nd in the National League table, however still have games in hand over every team in the league due to COVID-19 postponements.
Meanwhile, our hosts only sit two places above us in the league table having only won four of their 16 games.
A win against Yeovil will see Dover remain in 22nd, however they will close the gap on their opponents and on Weymouth if they fail to beat Notts County. However a defeat for Whites could see them drop down to bottom of the league if Barnet defeat league current league leaders Torquay.
A win for The Glovers could see them move up one place above King’s Lynn Town, however a Dover victory would see the hosts move into the relegation zone if Weymouth beat Notts County.
Despite this being the first meeting in the league this season, both teams have already played each other in the FA Cup this season.
On that day, The Glovers came away with a penalty shootout victory to move onto the First Round after Dover had twice come from behind to force spot kicks. Yeovil would make it to the Second Round of this year’s tournament before losing 3-2 to fellow National League side Stockport.
Saturday’s game could see former Glover Oscar Gobern return to Huish Park. The midfielder spent the 2017-18 season there, playing 11 league games for the club.
